A few diddles and its all over. Great fun at a great station. If UBNs are
kind, we should have a new MS North American record.
10M: not much over-the-pole propagation. We did work a few JAs, but a whole
lot of Europeans and North American stations.
15M: Good band. Open almost all day, both days. Had to spend time on 20/10M
with our one run transmitter, which just took away from how good 15 was.
20M: Opened to Europe much of the night. Some nice late afternoon and night
40M: Workhorse low band. Good for European runs 9 hours each day, and USA for
another 6 hours. Did manage to work a few JAs here, but very few were even
spotted at a time when we could work them.
80M: Suffered from the higher bands being so good. Had to put in time here for
the mults, but rate rarely justified it.
Only saw a few RTTY Skimmer spots- most were still done the old fashioned way,
by ops. GetScores gave us an important goal and helped keep us in the seat- to
work more mults than the local MM station K1SFA. Its close, but the last
GetScores seems to show we edged them out by a few. Great fun!
Thanks to Krassy K1LZ for the use of his great station.
